Taiwan-US International Engagement: The Global Cooperation Training Framework and Beyond
The Elliot School of International Affairs hosts a roundtable on the Taiwan-US Global Cooperation Training Framework.
On June 1, 2015 the U.S. and Taiwan launched the U.S.-Taiwan Global Cooperation and Training Framework Agreement. The Framework will not only support broader U.S.-Taiwan cooperation, but will also give the two countries a strong platform to enhance joint engagement in the Asia Pacific region and the world. The Framework is a milestone that will bring into full focus Taiwan's dramatic transformation from an international aid recipient to an aid provider, and provide a venue for both the U.S. and Taiwan to contribute to the development of other countries in the Asia-Pacific and around the world.
With opening remarks by Dr. Lyushun Shen, Representative, Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States.
Moderated by: Deepa Ollapally, Research Professor of International Affairs and Associate Director of the Sigur Center for Asian Studies at the Elliott School, GW.
Tensions evident in the recent European Union-China virtual summit reflect the increasing skepticism in Europe toward China and the worries over Ukraine and economic ties as well as human rights and environmental issues.
